Doddington Hospital's Minor Injuries Unit showed off two machines which cost more than £6,000.

The Friends of Doddington Hospital's March branch funded an electro-cardiogram machine to diagnose heart-related problems, which cost £1,800.

And profits from the hospital's shop, run by the co-ordinating committee made up of members from Benwick, Manea and March branches, donated about £4,300 for a slitlamp machine, which cost about £4,700.

The machine will be used by nurse practitioners in the unit to diagnose eye injuries more quickly.

Nurse practitioner David Gwilliam was presented with the two machines and said: "It is very much appreciated by us who will use these machines. It has clearly taken a lot of hard work to raise money like these committees have."

- The minor injuries unit is open from 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday.
